Near Star Map

Explore local space with this handy 3D app! The Near Star Map is an easy-to-use 3D visualization tool for nearby stars within 50 light-years of Earth's solar system.

Rotate and zoom the display using touch controls. Tap a star to bring up a brief information display about the selected star system. A text search function is present for locating nearby stars by name or catalog number. Information is included about the individual stars and any known planets for each system. General educational information about star classification is also included.

Updates will add more distant stars to the database. Exoplanet information for all listed stars will be added as research data becomes available in the public domain. This informational product is not supported by advertisements and requires no special permissions to run.

Note: Larger screens provide the best viewing experience, but the app is routinely tested on screens from HVGA 480x320 to WXGA 1280x800.
